The 'Killing' of Animals in this movie


MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

I was hoping to see, during the end credits on the DVD I purchased from Amazon (99 mins), a disclaimer at the end of the film which says that no animals were harmed during the production of this film (the credits were cut so maybe it was there, maybe not) - the dog with three arrows sticking out of him for one, and the horse being killed with a knife to the neck. I am hoping these scenes were mocked up but back in the early 70's I don't know whether they were or not, can anyone help.

Thanks.

Wow. The dig looks like a dog shaped bathroom rug, and the "horse" slashing is fake blood streaming from a vague, out if focus brown rectangular shape.

I think you're okay on the animal treatment front.

I don't think I ever saw one of those disclaimers in a movie until at least the late seventies. You really think they shot a live dog full of arrows and stabbed a horse to death on camera?

Shooting a live dog - I wouldn't
Stabbing a horse - again, I wouldn't
But riding the horses with a running-w, that is a different story.
